Schnoodle is the name given to a cross between a schnauzer and a poodle. While breed associations, such as the American Kennel Club, do not recognize the schnoodle, it is a popular breed due to its friendly temperament and hypoallergenic coat, explains About.com.
The schnoodle is a first-generation cross, bred from a pure-bred poodle and a pure-bred schnauzer. Like all hybrid crosses, schnoodle puppies combine traits from both parent breeds though the specific traits any particular puppy inherits remains a matter of chance. Schnoodles can have rough coats or smooth, come in wide variety of colors, and can vary greatly in size. A typical adult weighs between 7 and 16 pounds, but a giant schnoodle, bred from a standard poodle and a giant schnauzer, can weigh up to 90 pounds.
